A ShopStyle Competition Tale!

I found out about a rather fab-sounding, right-up-my-(current)-alley competition via Hannah's blog on Tuesday and since then have been having a little think about what sort of outfit I'd like to come up with (hence the last-min entry!)

Run by Shopstyle, it's giving those who enter a chance to win £1000 by creating a festival outfit for £200 or under using items that can be found on their site (a fab go-to when you just want one place to search rather than having to trawl through site after site!).

1) Asos Smock Dress
2) Asos Parka
3) Asos Biker Boots
4) New Look Tights
5) Falke Socks
6) River Island Bag
TOTAL - £194.99
As we all know, I am a major fan of dresses, so this outfit wouldn't be complete without one! I paired this bright, floral-patterned smock number (patterned enough, hopefully, to hide the dirt) - perfect for skimming over festival-food-and-alcohol-full-bellies - with a toughened-up parka (who doesn't love a bit of leather detailing?), gorgeous black biker boots (I'm sorted for wellies, these would be for those times when I won't need them - i.e. the first day, before the mud has arrived!), black tights (staple), pink socks (to add a little frivolity!) and an across-the-body-bag for keeping any little valuables I may need on me during the day.

Let me know what you all think!

To my fabulous Tori's Tales comment'ers - I cherish each and every comment you take the time to leave me and, because of that, I reply to each and every one in return. If you have a Twitter account, then that's where you'll find me replying (because, let's be honest, I live on Twitter. In Twitter. Around Twitter. Twitter). If you don't then fear not, because a) this means you don't say stuff like the things above and b) I'll find you elsewhere.......
